One of Palm Beach's more riveting romances, a hotsy-totsy fling around town that could turn into something more serious, involves Chan Cox Mashek, the Texas heiress, and James "Jamie" Kabler, the divorced husband of Elizabeth Rosensteil Kabler, Mrs. Walter Annenberg's daughter.

You will recall that Chan recently divorced her husband, John Mashek, amid a flurry of unpleasant publicity regarding failure to gain entrance to some select New York and Southampton private clubs. Now she's taken much more than a passing fancy to Jamie, who with his preppy looks and impeccable grooming, looks like an ad for Polo by Ralph Lauren. When he was married to Elizabeth, they occupied a sweeping Greenwich estate when they were not country-clubbing around that classiest (and cash-iest) of Connecticut towns. Elizabeth's an heiress too, you know.

Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin arrived in Paris last week and are now spread out in luxury at the Plaza-Athenee. Saturday night, the dynamic duo, just like Batman and Robin, turned up at the Theatre des Champs-Elysees, for the Cesars, France's answer to the Academy Awards. Both wore tuxedos; both looked divine to die, or at least to swoon. Meanwhile, Kim is thinking of launching her nudie PETA poster at the Hard Rock Cafe in Paris. Life is a cabaret, old chums.

At the Cesars, Kim and Alec sat next to Gerard Depardieu and Minister Jacques Toubon and his wife Lise, you will be bouleverses to hear. But after presenting Juliette Binoche with the Best Actress award for her starring role in "Blue," Kim and Alec blew out of there. Just disappeared. And didn't attend the supper afterwards, where about 300 people were waiting desperately for them, practically frothing at the mouth. The guests finally gave up hope. And you will be thrilled to learn that despite such acute disappointment, no one suicided himself, as they say en Francais.

Kim and Alec are pretty, but isn't Depardieu bigger than both of them? I mean, he takes up twice the room.
